Cindy Slater Dolinar:

First off, I am a proud mother of 2 American soldiers. I have so much gratitude for all our troops, past and present. Their sacrifice is something I always have in my heart and in my mind. My sons have given me a lot of sleepless nights and tons of worry. Mt youngest son is in need of financial assistance and he recently wrecked his car and has no money to fix it. All of his cash from the VA goes to housing, insurance and groceries. I don’t noemally ask for help from anybody but am making one exception. He use to love to eat at Applebees when he could afford to. He hasn’t been there for quite a while and both of my military sons will be coming on Veterans Day to participate in your generous appreciation of their service. God bless all of our brave men and women who serve.

Tonya M.:
